Why Buy New When You Can Swap for New to You?

Seasons come and go and so do fashion trends. So rather than spending your savings on a new wardrobe for fall, swap out your unwanted frocks for something that is new to you at our YDT/Yelp sponsored clothing swap at the W Hotel Westwood.

Curious as to why you should swap? How about the opportunity to get a whole new wardrobe for free, or the chance of finding that perfect accessory to make your outfits shine. That's the beauty of a clothing swap... the opportunities are endless.

Here's the skinny, bring up to 10 items (clothing only please) to swap. They should be in good, wearable condition (think something you'd wear but isn't your perfect fit anymore).

We'll have everything organized, all you have to do is show up with stuff. While the clothes get sorted you'll mix and mingle with the fabulous ladies who might be providing you with your favorite new outfit. Plus you'll get to relax a little with a soothing hand massage from Bliss Spa and the first 50 guests who arrive will receive a complimentary eco-friendly garment bag from The Green Garmento for your dry cleaning duds.

For you crafty gals out there, one of our favorite bloggers Marisa from A Dress A Day will be giving demos on how to turn a fugly frocks into outfits that rocks.

Feel free to being a few extra items to donate as well as we'll be giving leftover items to Women Helping Women organization.

Best of all it's free to attend; all you have to do is RSVP to

When: Thursday, August 12 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Where: ESCAPE at W Los Angeles-Westwood 930 Hilgard Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90024.
